BERD Consulting

Fee Based Biostatistics Consulting


In addition to the free resources available to all iRISE members, the Faculty & Staff of the Division of Biostatistics are available to consult on a fee basis for both UTHSC & Non-UTHSC clients. After an initial free consultation, investigators will be provided with an estimate outlining the project's scope, timeline, and projected cost.
